oil leak from back of turbo

yesterday i was letting my truck warm up (high of neg 5 the other day) when i looked under it and saw a bunch of oil leaking on the ground. Today i got around to checking it out and it seems to be coming out of the exhaust side of the turbo and gets worse the more it warms up will put up some pics anything will help need to know next step to finding out the the problem is.
thank you

seal inside the Turbo. Oil feeds up to the bearing........ thru the pedistol, then into the turbo, and back out

other than removing the turbo..... The Sd trucks are alot easier to remove the turbo from than the OBS trucks.

i would do the whole rebuild while you have it out that way you know everything is good to go. first though you need to pull the intake tube off and make sure your impeller isn't hitting the housing. If it is your probably looking at a new turbo.
